Plants, plants, plants!

We have been all about plants for the last two weeks.  My cuties are experts at all things plants!

For our centers, we added a flower shop to the dramatic play area

In our writing center, we created a paper garden with labels.

Blocks center was transformed into a garden bed building area.

Our science center allowed us to experiment the job of the roots.  Students buried the roots and turned on a fan to see that roots hold the plant in the ground.

We also recorded our plants' growth everyday in our plant journals.

We practiced what plants need to grow with a song and motions from my plant unit.  (My cuties were little seeds for the song and grew as I added what they needed to them.)

We created this mural to show what plants need to grow.

We labeled the parts of the plant with this craftivity.

You can get these ideas and so much more in my 67 page plant unit!

Constructive Playthings Product Review

Happy Sunday!  I was recently contacted by Constructive Playthings to review a product from their on-line store.


My order arrived very quickly and my cuties were excited to see what goodies arrived for them.

We received the Caterpillar Counting game and they loved playing it!

 The game was simple and fun for my pre-kindergarten kiddos.  To play the game, students rolled two dice

then followed the directions on the dice.  The color dice tells students what color caterpillar to pull and the caterpillar dice has a number to tell them how many pulls you can give the caterpillar.  One side of the dice has the letter J (pictured above) which lets the player pull the whole caterpillar out of the tree.  The goal was to count and get caterpillars and that's what they did.  They loved playing it!
